director nod for "zero dark thirty's" kathryn bigelow. her tlim thriller was considered a shoe-in among critics. the movie has been a target of criticism from washington lawmakers. did politics doom her nomination? "outfront" tonight, sharon waxman, editor of, which cover the entertainment industry. also a former "new york times" movie critic. john mccain talked about "zero dark thirty." he was saying, look, this movie makes you think waterboarding and torture is how we got the information that led us to osama bin laden. that's not the case, the movie is inaccurate. do you think the academy's perception of politics and the truth of the movie played a role in why she didn't get the nod? >> let's first point out that the movie did get a best picture nomination and a best screenplay nomination and other nods, but i would tend to agree with you that the fact that kathryn bigelow, the director of the movie and one of the producers behind it wasn't recognized this morning does suggest that the controversy around the film did hurt it, yes, i think so. >> you point out the film itse

that kathryn bigelow, the director of the movie and one of the producers behind it wasn't recognized this morning does suggest that the controversy around the film did hurt it, yes, i think so. >> you point out the film itself got nominations. was it perhaps more personal, at her? as opposed to political? >> i don't think it's personal at her, although you can't disassociate the film from the director. i think that is some kind of clear signal. jessica chastain, who we interviewed today who was the star of the film and was nominated for her performance as a cia agent who was obsessively searching for bin laden, she said it was bittersweet for her because she wouldn't have gotten the nomination without kathryn bigelow. it does start with a director like her. certainly, i think she's going to be feeling it personally. there were accusations there that were quite serious, that they were misusing the facts, that they had undue access at the cia. there were a number of things. >> now, you talk about the portrayal of the truth. here is kathryn bigelow last night before she knew what was go

there is possibly classified/declassified documents that mark boal and kathryn bigelow had access to in order to make this film, to make it as detailed as possible. obviously a lot of people are sort of harping on the torture aspect of the movie, and whether it endorses it. that is pretty ridiculous, because it is just saying what happened. and if torture was a part of it, it is not endorsing torture any more than schindler's list was endorsing nazism. > i also wanted to ask you about "the impossible." it wasn't listed as one of the best pictures on your list, but it's getting a lot of buzz, and people say that although it's hard to watch, it's a great film- > > it really is a terrific movie, and i think naomi watts is going to be nominated for her role in the movie. the film, it opened last weekend a little bit wider. it just barely did better than "zero dark thirty" did on only 60 screens, so it's not really getting quite the push out there in the box office, but it is a movie that people should see. it's got some controversy itself because of them sort of focusing on a white family as oppo
